1930s musical evening at Blists Hill Victorian Town Friday, 28th July

19th July 2017

Step back in time, don your vintage best, and go along to a nostalgic 1930s musical evening, being held at Blists Hill Victorian Town on Friday, 28th July. The event is part of a series of themed evenings with dinner and entertainment to celebrate the Ironbridge Gorge Museums’ 50th Anniversary.

Taking place in the Forest Glen Refreshment Pavilion between 6.30pm and 10pm, the lively evening includes a two-course meal of creamed chicken with spinach and new potatoes followed by a sherry trifle and tea or coffee; a vegetarian option will be available.

The first half of the live entertainment runs from 7pm until 7.45pm when there will be a break for dinner with the second half starting from around 9pm. The Museum’s resident duo will regale the crowd with a host of popular songs from the 1930s such as Bing Crosby’s Brother Can You Spare a Dime, Fred Astaire’s The Way You Look Tonight and Judy Garland’s Over the Rainbow.

Everyone is invited to dress in period costume for the evening, so ladies should dust off their waisted, tea length dresses and gents spruce up in broad, double breasted jackets, or go gangster style in wide pinstriped suits and spats.

Since its construction by the Pointon family in 1889, the Forest Glen Refreshment Pavilion has occupied a very special position in the local community, formerly at the base of Shropshire’s famous Wrekin hill and since moved, brick-by-brick to Blists Hill Victorian Town.

Tickets at £25 per adult must be pre-booked by calling Nikki Birch on 01785 252247 or email Annual Passport Tickets are not valid for this event. Drinks will be available to purchase on the night.
